Solar Plexus

Our Solar Plexus Chakra is related to inner personal power and element of fire. propelling thoughts, feelings, and desires. The six Soul body qualities for this Chakra are: Inner power, Hope, Consciousness, Balance, Dance of Life and God/Goddess.

The Solar Plexus is the third chakra where our will, power, and assertiveness originate. It is the core of our personality, our identity, of our ego. This chakra is described as the energetic centre that gives a person not only the power of creation but also the power to destroy.
The functional quality of the third chakra lies in its transformative power.
    A well balanced Solar Plexus chakra can enable one to effectively set out and achieve his/her goals.
   An over-active third chakra does not only lead to an increased perception of self-importance but can also ignite the lust for power, tends to bully others and the attitude of ‘I am always right’ and tends to turn a deaf ear to the advice given by others.

The Solar plexus chakra is located just behind the naval region below the rib cage, at the center of your lower belly above the Sacral chakra and below the Heart chakra. It is further considered to be the center of energy in a person’s body.  On the physical level, the solar plexus center influences the intestines, spleen, liver, and pancreas and is responsible for transforming the ingested food and oxygen into life energy. Out of all seven chakras this channel is one that will most directly benefit from a healthy diet.
This channel has a close relation with the immune system and is affected by stressful situations. Stress seems to have a huge effect  on this channel which can be sensed as a feeling of tightening in this area.
The Solar Plexus chakra is often associated with the color yellow. It has 10 petals which open toward the frontal part of our body.
Sound is one of the most effective ways to balance your Solar Plexus chakra. The vibrant power of sound can contribute greatly to the balancing not only of your chakras but also your mind.
